ActionCutPrint is a Professional Film Directing Resource Center for Independent (Indie) Filmmakers – since 1999!

Hi, I’m Peter D. Marshall and I’ve worked (and survived) in the Film and TV industry for over 40 years: as a Film Director, Television Producer, First Assistant Director and Creative Consultant. (See IMDb Credits.)

In 1999, I started ActionCutPrint as a film directing resource for Independent Filmmakers featuring online movie making courses, film directing articles, film and television books and filmmaking workshops.

In 2000, I started publishing my free monthly film making ezine, The Director’s Chair which is currently read by over 2400 filmmakers around the world. (You can read back issues here.)

I have developed several filmmaking workshops that I have presented over the past 18 years (Singapore, Shanghai, Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Haiti, Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Regina.) I am also the directing instructor at the Shanghai Vancouver Film School.

I also offer Film Directing Coaching services via Skype. So why hire me as your film directing coach? Along with my international teaching experiences and my 40 years of professional filmmaking experience (as a TV Director and Feature 1st AD), I feel I have the necessary qualifications to help you achieve your dreams of being a creative and successful independent film director.

I am also the author of the film directing book, Making the Magic Happen: The Art and Craft of Film Directing published by Michael Wiese Productions. You can preview the book on Amazon.com.
